Dear candidates of Jordanian Elections 2010,
After deeply observing your posters in Amman,I would like to say that I'm not very happy with them,and based on only my thoughts and what I believe I will happily offer you some piece of advice,here we go,
First,our biggest problem as Jordanians is that we do not take things seriously,so when making a poster you should keep it as simple as possible i.e. lose the orange,phosphoric,pink and purple backgrounds.
Focus on the most important three elements in your poster:your name,section and slogan other than that we don't really want a CV of your career

Be reasonable with your slogan,for example the slogan: "No Slogans" isn't exactly the most attractive one!
And also:"معاً لغدٍ أفضل"???come on!be creative!
Keep it short and strong,we've no time to read a 3 lines sentence in font size 12 in the street

Get yourself a nice picture,you're already paying all that money for the campaign and a good picture will coast you nothing compared to that!at least try not to make it look like it has been taken in 1985,and smile,for god's sake!we know the frown is a Jordanian trade mark but still,try not to make us feel like you're preparing to strangle someone! and while at it,try to look at the camera,not at some unseen point somewhere in the horizon,oh..and lose the colorful ties lol

What else?oh!..you don't need to hang the same poster 15 times on the same pole 0_O once or twice would be fine but over that it would just be absurd.

Only some of my observations,hope you enjoyed,good luck! :D

all elections are punch of crap , i never ever convinced that election is NOT democracy especially in our arab regions , it's a way to reach for certain postion and for the best intrest for the relatives and family and (OUR HOME) become the last.
